In the same way as you can use your key to open the windows by unlocking 2 times and holding the key in unlock position the windows will open, the criminal broke your lock and used a screwdriver to the same affect. You can also use your key to close the windows by locking and holding the key in that position. If the sunroof is open it will also close.

Psycho 99 VW Beetle - I think it may be possessed, because I roll the windows up, lock the doors and when I walk a few feet away - the car un-locks and the windows roll down automatically..HELP!!


apparently the VW beetle is an odd machine, there is some kind of module connected to the locks and windows, for instance if you have the door lock, and in the closed position then use the key to unlock and hold it in unlock position the window will roll down showing you that the lock control module is working. if I were you I would seriously consider taking it to a VW dealership and showing them the problem. they might be able to tell you whats wrong or suggest a good exorcist lol good luck

Check all fuses. Use a test light to check if there is current to the rear bulbs when flashers engaged. If there is, then replace the burnt bulbs. Check for ground at the rear lights.
Do the front marker lights work when engaged??

My rear (electric) driver-side window will go down but will not go up all the way. It can be pulled up manually if someone depresses the window button and another person pulls up on the window itself. It's...


Sounds like a window regulator clip problem. VW extended the warranty on these years ago, but only on front windows.
It's possible vw might do it under warranty. Call their 1-800 # and ask...

Window sensor drivers side


as far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2

GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.

2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.

hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!
